I just realized I answered May's question....  OOPS.

My favorite classic is East of Eden by John Steinbeck. It was the first book that made me fall in love with proper literature. I read it in high school and my love for books has never been the same since.

  1. I haven't read anything by Lauren Oliver. Rooms looks like an interesting story.

  2. I feel like the narrator is about to own someone and I'm almost sad we don't get to see it. Happy Friday and I hope you enjoy!

  5. Rooms looks like an interesting read. I like the artwork on the cover.

    I believe I own East of Eden on paperback, but I've never read it.

  6. I am currently reading EAST OF EDEN for the first time, as part of the Classics Club Spin Challenge. I am just plodding along. I read about three or four pages a day. At this pace I will be done by Christmas, I think. I am seeing the biblical allusions though and that is interesting. My BB and F56 quotes

  8. I have not read East of Eden, nor have I read any of Steinbeck's works 😲 I should probably take the opportunity and do so soon.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms.

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
